been loving the boat on the water now for the past 2 years but i must admit that it is a lot windier than i expected. Even days that say 3 to 5 mph winds end up to be 15 to 20. I thought it was the spring, then the summer was almost the same and the same for the fall last year and now this year has not changed much for me. Just wanted to ask you all if this is something new in the past couple years, maybe due to good old Gloria that they pretty much blame all weather occurrences on, or if this is just something that i need to get used to on the jersey shore.
Thanks,

Deanald seems like we are always battling the wind for at least some part of the day. Very few days where the wind is not a factor and even less days when it is in our favor. Look at it like this, we all as fisherman all have goals of becoming better fisherman through our experiences and certainly more consistent with our catch right?? Well the weather is just another challenge we must address along the way.

Deanald, I'm with Bob ECT about the typical south winds in the PM right now around here. As far as the fall it all depends on how the jet stteam sets up. A few years back I think there was one decent weekend out of eight without a nor'easter.

Bob ECT, how did you make out this weekend?

The last few years the W*** has been brutal. I always try to fish the am because the W*** always picks up in the afternoon.

Not bad, 8 small BFT and 1 60lber. Pair of Bonita and loads of Blue's too. Back to the dock by 1pm to avoid most of the heat wind.
